The University of Kansas Libraries will host Associate Professor of Law Lua Kamal Yuille at the April 3rd installment of the Libraries Lecture Series. The series, held at 10 am on the third floor of Watson Library, highlights the breadth of interdisciplinary research and creative work found on an expansive range of topics across campus.
Prior to joining KU Law faculty in 2013, Yuille was a William H. Hastie Fellow at the University of Wisconsin School of Law. She earned her degree at Columbia University, where she was one of two undergraduates selected for the Advanced Interdisciplinary Legal Education program. Her primary areas of research and teaching include immigration law and property theory. The lecture coincides with the upcoming Library Gallery exhibition “Lasting Impact: Brown v. the Board of Education,” which opens April 11th.
The lecture is free and open to the public, and refreshments will be provided.
The spring 2014 series features presentations of new research from eminent KU scholars in a variety of academic disciplines. Sarah Goodwin Thiel, head of KU Libraries’ Center for Community Affiliate Initiatives, explained that the new speaker series contributes to the campus culture of engaged scholarship by exploring the use of the libraries’ vast collections in internationally recognized research done by the KU community. “We are confident that the new series will serve to raise the profile of interdisciplinary scholarship within and beyond the university,” said Thiel.
One of the top 50 libraries in the Association of Research Libraries by volumes held, and the largest library system in Kansas, KU Libraries advance discovery, innovation and learning for KU, the state and a rapidly expanding community of world scholars.
